24 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in English and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classical Athenian philosopher Socrates was tried in 399 BCE on the basis of two notoriously ambiguous charges: corrupting the youth and impiety (in Greek, asebeia). A majority of the 501 dikasts (Athenian citizen-jurors) voted to convict him. Socrates was ultimately sentenced to death by drinking a hemlock-based liquid. This well-known account of the trial is by Plato, one of Socrates' students and a famous philosopher in his own right. Whether Socrates was punished unjustly is a contested issue which to this day inspires discussions about the nature and meaning of justice

Plato's Republic by Plato( Book )

15 editions published between 1900 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest works of philosophy, political theory, and literature ever produced, Plato's Republic has shaped Western thought for thousands of years and remains as relevant today as when it was written during the fourth century B.C. Republic begins by posing a central question: "What is justice, and why should we be just, especially when the wicked often seem happier and more successful?" For Plato, the answer lies with the ways people, groups, and institutions organize and behave. A brilliant inquiry into the problems of constructing the perfect state and the roles education, the arts, family, and religion should play in our lives, Republic employs picturesque settings, sharply outlined characters, and conversational dialogue to drive home the philosopher's provocative arguments

El pensamiento de Platon by G. M. A Grube( Book )

15 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Son muchos quienes se han acercado a los escritos de Platón con el fin de penetrar en su filosofía. Con todo, no es tarea fácil adueñarse del pensamiento del filósofo. Es necesaria una labor de síntesis para saber lo que el gran filósofo dijo o quiso decir acerca de un tema determinado; un trabajo que emprendió y llevó a cabo satisfactoriamente el profesor Grube en este libro, que nos presenta con plena vigencia, más de medio siglo después de su publicación primigenia, los puntos cardinales de la filosofía platónica. La hermenéutica de Grube sigue, en las mismas fuentes que comenta, la génesis y el desarrollo del pensamiento platónico: en primer lugar, la teoría de las ideas; a continuación viene el estudio del placer; siguen el eros, impulso emocional, y el alma, fuerzas interiores que conducen al hombre a una vida mejor; surge después la cuestión de los dioses; el arte y la educación son medios poderosos para que el hombre pueda alcanzar una vida buena; y por último, se estudia al filósofo en relación con la teoría del estado. Así, Grube nos brinda un completísimo recorrido por el pensamiento de Platón, que, a pesar de los años, se sigue leyendo con interés y pasión y sigue siendo de una enorme utilidad para todos aquellos que se acercan a las ideas de nuestro primer filósofo. George Maximilian Anthony Grube (1899-1982), es uno de los helenistas más eminentes de la pasada centuria

About G.M.A Grube's translations of Plato: ""Unmistakably superior: more lucid, more accurate, more readable. Above all, they're lucidly adorned, unpretentious, and in translating Plato that counts a good deal. The prose is, as English prose, persuasive, cogent, and as eloquent as it can be without departing from the text. --William Arrowsmith

Aristotle : on poetry by Aristotle( )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristotle's Poetics is the earliest-surviving work of dramatic theory and the first fully intact philosophical treatise to focus on literary theory. In it, the respected Greek sage offers an account of what he calls "poetry" (which the Greeks understood to literally mean "making"), examining its "first principles" and identifying its genres and basic elements, including what he terms drama-comedy, tragedy, and the satyr play--as well as lyric poetry, epic poetry, and iambic pentameter, which he always associates with wit
